I tried it without the back strap at first and then tried with the thickest one. My hand isn't big enough to get a good grip with the back strap so, I went back to no back strap and my groups actually improved.

All I know is it was a ***** to put on and my MBS tool came broken. Right now I have the middle size on, and will be trying it at the range tomorrow.

I purchased both of my gen4's because of how they feel with out any of the back straps. I also think they look like crap with any of the straps on. They mess up the lines of the gun. Glock should have taken some lessons from Springfield on the straps.

Webphiser, you dont have to have that tool. Any small solid object will work, ive pushed all 3 pins out before with an ink pen in a pinch.

I love the backstraps.. I use the largest one. I had a hell of a time getting the houge on after that but I like the feel of it. I do have giant meatmittens though...the extra strap plus houge was way to much for my friend. So to each his own... I think they work good. I also got a beavertail that is fun to use at times. I put the medium strap + beavertail and houge on. A pain but fun at the range..

Took them out, looked at them, and put them back in the box.

I love the feel of the Gen 4 without the backstrap. I have wide hands with shorter fingers so the older Glocks always gave me issues with maintaining a comfortable grip.

Ya I used the tool built into my dads M&P 9 to put on the back strap. Once I got it on the first time it was easier. Today I finally get to go put it through its paces, more than the 10rnds I did when I bought it, so I'll get to test which one I want, if any.

I am now using the fullest back strap again and changed all of them over. I noticed it the most during USPSA competition that the larger grip gave me better feel and control.

I put the Medium grip on my G17. Like the size, but it just feels too flimsy for my taste. Seems soft to me.

I have not used them and do not intend to. Have liked the stock grip right from the get go.
